When Michael Jordan hit that go-ahead jumper in Game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals, the Utah Jazz championship hopes went up in smoke. Freehand Profit has made quite a name (and a face) for himself in the sneaker community thanks to his unique sneaker art sculptures – gas masks, to be more specific. Using classic Air Jordans and Nikes to create these visceral masks with unsettling demeanors, Freehand Profit reconstitutes leather and rubber to create these masks, this time using the Air Jordan XIV ‘Last Shot’. He also answers the most common question he likely receives – “What’s the point?” – by stating that his work is a chance for him to reflect the world around him. He also states that he never plans ahead with the sneaker, but that the shoe itself dictates the mask (more cool info from Freehand Profit here). Check out the gallery of images below and if you want to own this piece, check out the auction from freehandprofit57 on eBay.
